Happy Birthday Alice! To celebrate 150 years of the publication of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, this exhibition explores how Alice has captured our imaginations for so many years.

Although the story has been adapted, appropriated, re-imagined and re-illustrated since its conception, we are still enchanted by Carroll’s original, much loved story, which continues to inspire new generations of writers and illustrators.

Go and see Lewis Carroll’s original manuscript with hand-drawn illustrations, alongside stunning editions by Mervyn Peake, Ralph Steadman, Leonard Weisgard, Arthur Rackham, Salvador Dali and others.

Also visit the pop-up shop in the British Library Entrance Hall until 31 January 2016.

SOPHIE @ Village Underground / 21st January 2016


Doors: 20:00-23:00

@ Village Underground, 54 Holywell Lane, London EC2A 3PQ

Tickets: £12 book online

Under the moniker SOPHIE, reclusive London-based musician Samuel Long made a huge, fizzy splash on the underground dance-pop scene during the mid-2010s with a series of singles that contorted elements of giddy Eurodance, Japanese and Korean pop, and experimental sound design into blindingly neon-colored pop-art gems.

Often associated with the similar-minded PC Music label, SOPHIE’s sophisticated, hyperkinetic productions typically feature high-pitched female vocals, sugary synthesizer textures, and beats drawing from underground dance music styles such as U.K. garage as well as mainstream pop and hip-hop.

Instead of utilizing samples, he constructs his inventive tracks from waveforms, creating bizarre noises which resemble bubbling water, inflating balloons, elastic bands, and other non-musical sounds, adding to the surrealist, blatantly artificial quality of his music.

Cycle Revolution @ Design Museum / until 30th June 2016


Doors: 10am to 5.45pm daily

@ Design Museum, Shad Thames, London SE1 2YD

Tickets: £13.65 book online (1 ticket for 3 exhibitions)

Cycle Revolution at London’s world leading Design Museum celebrates the diversity of contemporary cycling in Britain from every day commuting to Olympic level competition and looks at where design and innovation may take the riders of the future.

The last decade has seen a revolution in cycling, on a scale not witnessed in the UK since the Second World War.

Cycle Revolution celebrates the diversity of contemporary cycling in Britain from every day commuting to Olympic level competition. It brings together bicycles, clothing, accessories, equipment, film and photography to explain where cycling is now and where it might take us in the future.

The exhibition looks at cycling subcultures through four ‘tribes’ – the High Performers who reach Olympic speeds, the Thrill Seekers who take on all terrains, the Urban Riders who pedal our cities mile by mile, and the Cargo Bikers who work on two wheels. British bespoke bicycle frame building is showcased in the exhibition in a recreation of a bicycle making workshop featuring artisans from across the UK.

Cycle Revolution closes with a glimpse into the future of cycling – how it is changing the infrastructure of the city, and how architects, designers and urban planners are responding to the needs of twenty-first century cyclists? Enjoy the ride!

Don’t miss the specially-commissioned Ben Wilson bicycle sculpture in the museum’s Atrium, cycling films in the 1.5 Gallery and series of cycling related talks and events.

NYE 2015 @ Fabric / Thursday 31st December 2015


Doors: 21:00 – 09:00

@ Fabric, 77a Charterhouse St, Clerkenwell, London EC1M 3HN

Tickets: £45 book online

Aside from Fabric’s birthday celebration, New Year’s Eve is pretty much the only other date of the calendar year where there’s a unified expectation that comes with the magnitude of the celebration at hand. So, for the breaking of their 17th year, they’ve had the privilege to hand pick a killer cast of artists to join the residents, Craig Richards and Terry Francis – two people who have a long and proven track record of delivering the groove time and again.

Joining them on the 31st December here in EC1 will be a selection of headline talent from the club’s recent history. Nina Kraviz is set to return to Farringdon after the success of her debut acid powered трип label party here and she’ll be joined by one of favourite Bristolians, Eats Everything, who fully demonstrated his capabilities at the controls of Room Two this October just gone.

George FitzGerald will also be joining, stepping up after enjoying the success of his debut album, Fading Love, which came out on Domino offshoot, Double Six. The Hot Creations associate and London lynchpin Richy Ahmed will also be spinning on the night, backed up by one of our city’s most prized selectors, Alex Arnout aka the man responsible for Dogmatik Records and for breaking the career of one Maya Jane Coles who we’re pleased to note is also in tow for the celebrations.

And, as if that lineup wasn’t already enough, they’ll once again be opening for a full twelve hours with the club running from 9pm until 9am!
